Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Play that Dead show one more time

Mine is probably the shortest shows at 32 minutes that the Dead ever played, the March 23, 1975, Kezar Stadium concert to benefit S.N.A.C.K. Technically they were billed as Jerry Garcia & Friends. The other acts on the bill included Neil Young, Dylan, Santana, Joan Baez, Doobie Brothers and others! They came out and played Blues for Allah-> Stronger than Dirt-> Drums-> Stronger than Dirt-> Blues for Allah for the first time, after a 6 month hiatus, to a live audience! Listening to this show and how the audience responds to this music absolutely defines what this band is all about. What other band could pull off an instrumental set of new material at a festival and have the crowd go absolutely bonkers? Ladies & Gentlemen, The Grateful Dead!

Oh yeah Billy Graham basically forced them back out to do an encore of Johnny B. Goode. Nice but entirely unnecessary.

As a backup, Europe '72 does wonders for my attitude.
